My husband & I will be in Prague over a weekend in October. Hubby is Catholic & "has" to go to mass every week. Does anyone have a suggestion for a Roman Catholic service. Would prefer one in English, but he is so well skilled, he can easily follow along! (Those of you who are dedicated understand-LOL) We are staying near the Flora Metro station, so looking for one that is near our hotel or one that is considered historical that I can accompany him and enjoy the architecture? We are planning on getting the 3-day PID ticket, so we can go anywhere. Would really appreciate if anyone knows of any near any of the cultural/tourist sites, so we don't have to make a separate detour.
Google "catholic churches in prague" and you'll see a map. Or ask your hotel when you get there.

You made me chuckle on that one. I remember attending mass with my devoted Mom in Cologne, Germany and thinking "hmmm, I know exactly what they're saying!" 😉
Looking on Google Maps, if you walk down Vinohradska you come to the Church of the Sacred Heart, which has a rather interesting art deco design. http://srdcepane.cz/en/
If language is not an issue and you're looking for somewhere that would interest you as well as your husband, I'd suggest going to St Vitus Cathedral at the castle. There are regular services held there, including two different mass services on Sundays. You can see all the times on the cathedral website:
There are also services held at Strahov monastery:
And an evening mass is held at the beautiful Loreta pilgrim church:
All of these are tourist destinations in their own right so should be interesting to you as well as your husband!
There is an English-language Mass at the church of St. Thomas in Mala Strána. You can find more information, including mass times here.
6pm on Saturday, and 11am on Sunday.
Yes, St Vitus. Impressive setting.
